Think Enfield!

Flag Image Mission
To make Enfield a healthy, safe, prosperous and desirable place to live.

This is achieved through the administration of laws and regulations that govern development within the community. It is also accomplished by obtaining outside resources to supplement the Town's general fund and assist with redevelopment projects. 

We strive to create a pro-growth environment that promotes local business. Enfield enjoys a superior location with direct highway access.

We are the heart of the Springfield – Hartford Knowledge Corridor.

Thompsonville Reinvigoration

From nothing, came something…beginning in 2014 Thompsonville had very little happening that concentrated on adding value back physically, socially or economically.  This prompted us to begin efforts towards the reinvigoration and revitalization of Downtown Thompsonville in Enfield.  The plan is quite simply, to create a sense of place.  We want to celebrate this historic section of Enfield for its unique nature and storied Main Street past while ensuring it is functional and desirable for today’s residents.  Learn more.
